Hauppauge, NY — Electrograph Systems is moving forward with a liquidation process of all its inventory and assets, as a result, the company says, of poor economic conditions and “constrained access” to vendor credit.
“We are very disappointed with this outcome. After exploring all other possible avenues for sustaining the company, including an unsuccessful sale process, our board decided this was the only path for our company,” said Alan Marc Smith, Electrograph’s outgoing CEO.
During the distributor’s wind-down period, a group of 60 employees will remain with the company and the four warehouses in City of Industry, California, Grove City, Ohio, Hauppauge, New York, and Middletown, New York, will remain open and shipping product. The rest of Electrograph’s 75 employees were laid off on May 29.
“The last couple of months have been challenging for our employees and we’d like to say thank you for their loyalty, professionalism and service to our customers and to each other,” Smith said in a statement.
The company’s website will remain functioning during this period where it will be advertising promotional offerings and posting updates on the liquidation process.
In the company’s statement, outgoing president Sam Taylor said that after being with Electrograph for 22 years, he is “deeply saddened” by the result of this situation. “We would like to thank our resellers for their business over the past 25 years, our vendor partners and other friends in the industry for their support,” he said. “Above all, we thank our loyal employees for their hard work and dedication.”
